Food for Life

Jonathan’s eyes were illuminated by the provision of the Lord but his father had become a curse to the faithful in Israel. What should have been a blessing, life giving sustenance from the Lord, was turned into the sentence of death. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in its mother’s milk!
         Some have made this meal out to be a means of death, rather than life. Some in Corinth were sick or died because they did not discern the Lord’s body rightly. Coming to the place of life, they found death.
         But God has better things in store for you, you who have rested all your hope on the life-giving body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more to be desired than gold, yea, than much fine gold: He is sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
         1 Cor. 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
